    Elderberry Research/Studies:

    In the study conducted in early 2019, the total effect size for flu symptoms was 2.074. This means that roughly 98% of people who take elderberry for the flu will improve faster than the average person with the flu who does not take elderberry. Similarly, 41% of people who take elderberry for the common cold will improve faster than the average person who does not take elderberry.
